An eye-catching display from the Grant Museum of Zoology and UCL Geology Collections celebrating the International Year of Biodiversity.

In natural history there are no duplicates “ every specimen is different. For students and researchers at UCL, the existence of several examples of the same specimen type is crucial to the way their subjects are taught and studied. For a scientific theory to be tested many samples must be collected and analysed. It is only by understanding the variation within a group that its limits be determined, and its relationships described.
